Updates for Monday, September 21

Parents/Guardians – if you are considering switching to the elementary virtual school (online), you must fill out this form before Tuesday, September 22, 2020 at 7 pm. You should have received an email about this last night.

Also, please return the student index cards, indicating any information that needs to be updated and the school start up package.

Math – We are about to wrap up our Week of Inspirational Math and students left the class with a couple of challenges to work on. They should work on these for homework and be prepared to share tomorrow morning.

Health – We began our first health unit, looking at healthy eating.

Language – Students were given access to YRDSB’s eBook Library and shown how to search for, borrow and return books. The advantage of this site over EPIC is that it has a wider range of reading material (especially for intermediate content) and students are not blocked from reading books from this site after 4 pm. We worked on some grammar exercises and began a cycle of Writer’s Workshop too.

Hope everyone has a great night!
